Added the beginnings of the gallery. At the moment, it only contains
the podium photos. I’ll be working on adding more photos over
the coming days.
Just getting started. Added this page as a placeholder and linked
it in to the menus. First thing to come will be a gallery for the
podium photos. More galleries will come later.
The racing sounded good and close from the conversations we had and
overheard in the winner’s circle. Overall, the carnage seemed
neither worse nor better than average. They did manage to thoroughly
destroy a few cars, and bang up quite a number of them. There were
even a couple of heroic stories of folks putting their car in the wall
on Thursday or Friday and getting them put together in time to run and
sometimes win on Saturday.
We were surprised that the region wasn’t sending the winners out
on victory laps. That had been the custom for as long as we have been
involved or spectating the ARRC. It saved a lot of confusion on pit
road and in the winner’s circle area, and it let them squeeze
the sessions together more tightly on Saturday, which made keeping the
schedule a lot easier. The final run group came off the track and was
out of the winner’s circle by 1700.
Lefty just got
back from Road Atlanta after
the annual American Road Race of
is probably still on the road. We covered the podium and
winner’s circle activities, as we’ve done for several
years. On Sunday, we got out around the track a bit, but were
just pooped from yesterday’s activities. So we headed home
a bit early.
